GAMBAJ (pronounced GAMB – /AI/) means “boot” in Piedmont dialect, coming from “gambale” or “stivale” in the Italian language.
It suggests the geographic form of Italy and at the same time refers to the image of the boot on the label. The name and image are reminiscent of the boots worn by farmers for work in the vineyards.
